The Omer Quartet, the School of Music's new graduate string quartet fellows, performs works by Schubert, Haydn, Bartók and Mozart in their debut performance at the University of Maryland. 

The Omer Quartet is a leader among today’s young string quartets. A top prize winner in the 2017 Paolo Borciani String Quartet Competition, finalist and prizewinner of the 2016 Bordeaux International Competition in France, and the 2013 Grand Prize and Gold Medal Winner of the 40th Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the quartet has been praised for playing with a “sense of discovery and adventure, but also with considerable finesse.”
